Hi Guys.
« on: September 15, 2017, 02:25:18 PM »
I`m Frank, a mature (all right, old) gamer from the UK. I started 40K with 2nd ed starting a Blood Angels force before adding Eldar. I mainly use an Ulthwe army though I do occasionally go Biel Tan. I am just taking my first look at v8 and was looking for some clarification on a few things, which I found on here so I thought I had better sign up.

I`m just off to have a look round, thanks for letting me join.

Hello!

That's not blatant, this is blatant: I'm super happy that I'm playing Austria, the greatest nation in all of Diplomacy!

The Geezer ranks are many and varied. I'd explain them to you all but I need a nap and a curry.

Exarchs are those weird folks who only play one faction for, like, 10 years.
